Penryn Pale Ale is our take on a classic IPA. it has a fruity and hoppy nose with hints of peach and lemongrass, leaving a nice mellow bitterness on the tongue.

stravale (2123) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [200814]
Orange, murky, orange white frothy head
Aroma of sweet fruity malts, soft orange and lemon citrus
Taste of citrus zest, very yeasty, barley orange malts, grainy, bit sherberty, bitter orange
Palate - medium carb and body, quite smooth, sweet malts, fairly bitter hops. Finish as main flavour.
Overall - Poured with a large head, rather yeasty and musty which spoilt it. Not bad but far too much yeast sediment

Leighton (11319) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Cask at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours clear gold with a frothy white head. The aroma has some grainy read, berries, citrus and leaves. Light sweet flavor with doughy bread, more grains, faint grass, leaves, some orange, hints of toffee. Light bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Simple bready malt finish with further berries, toffee, light bitter earth and leaves. Solid bitter.

allmyvinyl (3610) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2014
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber, thin off-white head. Aromas of light citrus, pine, resin, caramel. Taste is slightly chalky, more hop bitterness and quite well rounded out by sweet tastes. Pretty good.

Idiosynkrasie (3917) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
500ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, barely white head. Cautious fruity hoppy aroma, subtle hints of peach, a touch of gooseberry, caramel malty background lends sweet-ish fruitiness support. Taste is bitter hoppy with a mineral touch, hints of gooseberry, a touch of bitter orange, slightly biscuity caramel malty basis. Presumably matching the historic IPA flavour profile, definitely making me rebellious concerning the Bitter rubric. If we divide Session IPAs from regular IPAs (and APAs), I have certain difficulties with the concordance of English IPAs and Bitters.

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a copper colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of biscuit, some sweet fruity notes and grass. Flavour of biscuity malts, grass, mild peach juice sweetness, grassy bitterness and some harsh grainy notes. Light bodied and high-ish carbonation. Sweet, harsh, grainy finish. Harsh.

olio (6273) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear amber color with a large head. Aroma of pine, hops, caramel, malts and hay, some fruity notes also. Very bitter palate with citric fruits, mandarin, caramel malts, piney notes, gooseberries and faint nutty notes on the aftertaste. Refreshing and quite balanced. Nice at first but gets a bit too bready and dry for my taste towards the end.

BlackHaddock (3892) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Shared bottle at the fourth Shrewsbury bottle swap on 28th April 2014. I got a quarter of the 500ml. Cloudy amber body that had plenty of life, almost fizzy actually. Fruity aroma, a veritable basket of different fruits, some sweet, some citrusy sour, the taste mirrored the smells a real fruit bowl of a flavour. Pity about the over carbonation, a smoother, creamier body would have been nicer. Overall a semi-sweet fruity brew with enough bitterness to just about make it interesting.

Theydon_Bois (9109) - The Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle, from Hogsback brewery shop, at JFs house decoration bash, 22/02/14. Hazed orange amber with a good sized off white head that retains well. Nose is bitter orange, toasted bread, straw, apricot jam. Taste comprises bread dough, orange marmalade, earthy hop in the background, bitter citrics. Medium bodied, light prickly carbonation - a little over cooked in this respect, semi drying close. Nose sure Id have this as a bitter, more golden blonde Id say.
